Cartoon Movies

This work is inspired from the old Albanian movies, which may be considered as the only uncontested echo of communism into our daily life. Today, they lost their ideological incantation, turning to be a source of nostalgia, or some kind of reference to reconsider our current system.  Being an amateur of the vast collection of old Albanian movies, I began to photograph my TV screen, so I could take out and collect different characters, objects and scenes. Then I started to create another “scenarios” by engaging old cinematography to current media affairs. This juxtaposition is somehow similar to the way we daily receive all sorts of  information when using a remote control.
